Had a pint at Sweet Afton in Astoria. A clean, but odd beer. Lots of brown bread, nuts, and clove — though more than I'd care for. Reminds me of of the base beer for Southern Tier's Pumking, which I respect but don't personally enjoy.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a dark copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured clean malts and a light herbal hop.

The taste was balanced with a dry, grainy malt and neat herbal hop. A touch of caramel malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a quaffable well balanced beer.

The beer offers toasty malt, light toffee sweetness, then onto floral and herbal hops that leave a lingering bittering. A really crisp lager that has a wonderful balance of bready and sweet malts with assertive hops.
